    Spotted the first ladybird in my garden this afternoon - orange with plenty of spots, but not a harlequin I don't think. Seems to small for that, so I'll suggest it's the 14-spot, Propylea 14-punctata...

    The first image is the one when I spotted her, and was with the Canon 100mm IS L lens, the following three were the closer photos using the LAOWA Venus 2:1 macro lens.

    You can she's making her escape in the last after being pestered by the maniac 'tog in the middle two!

    Tricky subject, especially with added line of sight problems in the last one. My preference is for the second as it avoids the clipped areas between the eyes in #3. I prefer the DoF coverage and angle of #3 though.
